We’re delighted to share these stats from our 24 Reasons to be Cheerful campaign from Christmas 2020. We loved doing it – it was great to see the sheer variety of contributions, and the response, in viewing figures and, of course, in funds raised.
The money will go to the three charities that took part in the project, Impact Living, Rotherham Hospice and Weston Park Cancer Charity. We’re very happy that we’re able to contribute something to their vitally important work, in a climate that’s so difficult for charities.
There was, of course, more to the project than fundraising – we raised awareness of the work of our partner charities, and of our own work over the last eight years. And we raised people’s spirits during a dark winter and in the lead-up to a difficult Christmas.
Our thanks to everyone who contributed a film, and to all of you who watched and shared and donated. Your energy and enthusiasm is what keeps us going – that’s what Inspiration for Life has always been about, as you’ll see from the videos showing highlights from our past events (all the films are still available on our YouTube channel, by the way, and the fundraising page is still open – the links are in the poster).
Keep an eye on the website and our social media – we have lots of plans!
